In reply to Fire shooting out of boiler by Christine on January 19th, 2003 10:29 AM [Go to top of thread]

Christine, personally I don't know much about boiler systems, but, if you fired up the boiler while you had a burner acess door still standing open I would think that flames might well momentarily seem to "shoot out" just based on the initial expansion that would take place as the gas ignited. Being the first time it was lit this season, and just having replaced the thermocouple might also have to do with it, because the pilot had not been burning, which would mean there was not the normal draw in the flu from the pilot already in place.

May be talking out of the side of my head, but let's see if anybody else thinks that sounds reasonable.
